CALVARY KIDS
SUNDAY 9AM & 11AM

Our weekend services are designed with children in mind! In Early Childhood, your child will be cared for in a safe, clean, age-appropriate environment by loving, screened adults. These adults will nurture your child and actively share God’s love with them. Check in is located downstairs in the Early Childhood area.

  • Nursery children (birth-2 years) will be read stories, enjoy music, age-appropriate toys, and cared for in a loving and calm way
  • Preschool children (2 years-TK) will interact with children their age while dancing, singing, listening to bible stories, doing crafts, and enjoying our outdoor classroom

CALVARY KIDS AT HOME

If you are unable to join us on campus, we post a new lesson each week so join us online by clicking the play button!

SAFETY AND SECURITY

In children’s ministry, the safety and security of every child is extremely important to us. Each of our leaders and volunteers has been through an orientation process and has been screened to work with your child. Your child will be cared for and taught God’s Word in a safe, loving, and encouraging environment.

So that we have the most updated information on your child, we ask all families to update their profile in Calvary Connection. In the event that we need to reach you during the church service, we will use the cell phone number of the person you selected at check-in.

In the event of an emergency all of our staff, leaders and volunteers are trained in our emergency procedures. These procedures include working with the Calvary security team and being aware of the evacuation plans for our facility. 

VOLUNTEER WITH CALVARY KIDS
ON SUNDAY MORNINGS

Volunteers make Calvary Kids come to life each week! There are so many ways you can help make kids feel loved and accepted here at Calvary Westlake. We’d love to talk with you personally to help you find the right fit! We also invite parents to serve with their children because we believe it is important to model serving and invest in the faith of their children.

CHILD DEDICATION

Throughout the year, we offer the opportunity for young children to be dedicated to God by their families.
